No opinion of CEO

I worked at Morgan Stanley as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Pays well and the people are reasonably smart. They'll buy you whatever you need.

Cons

It is a behemoth. Whatever you're working on needs to be signed off on by 10 different people. A lot of waiting around for approvals that get sent back with poorly stated questions.

Advice to Management

Learn how to manage IT projects. Learn that Agile means more than a morning phone call.
